Study With Us


The Institute of Neuroscience offers a variety of opportunities for postgraduate research and training, in a broad range of areas including cellular and molecular neurobiology, systems neuroscience, animal behaviour, neuroimaging, psychiatry and psychology.

Postgraduate Research Degrees

We offer both Doctoral (PhD and MD) and Masters (MRes and MPhil) level research degrees in all our research themes.

The MRes in Neuroscience is a Masters degree which combines taught elements with a substantive research project. Both taught modules and the research project are focused on subjects within the Neuroscience area.

Other opportunities for PhD and MPhil degrees may be available by arrangement with individual supervisors.
